i tried this last time i went to Aedes......they had a bottle for preview, although it wasn't being sold yet (Oct. 3rd, like you said).
it was nice...didn't really catch my attention. pretty bottle though...
to me, it seemed more incense-like than anything else...with a bit of musk.
OH, and this fragrance was custom made by L'Artisan for Aedes...that's what they told me..
